The CMD177C3 is a packaged 6 to 14 GHz double-balanced mixer with a low conversion loss of 6.5 dB, high LO to RF isolation of 45 dBc, and a high input IP3 of +18 dBm across the 6 to 14 GHz bandwidth. The minimum LO drive requirement is +9 dBm, with saturation reached at levels above +13 dBm. Housed in a leadless, 3 mm ceramic surface mount package, the CMD177C3 can be used in both up- and down-converting systems.
Additionally, a pair of CMD177C3 components can be configured as an image reject mixer or single sideband modulator with external hybrids and power splitters. The wide IF bandwidth of DC to 5 GHz allows for the support of numerous frequency conversion plans.
Ideal applications for this new mixer are point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios, test equipment, sensors, and military end-use.
